How Does it Work?
Getting your chance to win great cash prizes whilst supporting the local community is easy! Just follow these steps:
Decide which type of ticket to buy 60 pence from every ticket sold goes to good causes. However, you can decide to donate this total amount to the Local Fund, which is shared equally amongst all participating organisations, or you can select a specific cause to support. They will then receive 50 pence from each ticket you buy, with the other 10 pence going to the Local Fund.
Choose six numbers, each from 0 - 9 You can pick any number from 000000 to 999999, maybe you'd like to use a special birthdate or phone number! Alternatively, choose a Lucky Dip to get a random number selection.
Sit back and wait to see if you are a winner After the first draw, the latest Harrogate Lottery results will be available online every Saturday. Winners will also be contacted directly, so you will never miss out on a prize.
Prizes & Odds of Winning
As well as the £25,000 jackpot, there will be four other prize tiers to play for each week. Here are the details on all prizes available, how to win them, and your chances of doing so:
|6||£25,000||1 in 1,000,000|
|5||£2,000||1 in 55,556|
|4||£250||1 in 5,556|
|3||£25||1 in 556|
|2||3x Free Tickets||1 in 56|
|The overall odds of winning any prize in the Harrogate Lottery are 1 in 50.|
*Players must match the winning numbers in order. For example, if the winning number was 897041 then you would win £25 if your ticket was 897XXX or XXX041. Match all six numbers in the correct order to bag the jackpot.
The £25,000 top prize is fixed. This means that if more than one player wins they won't have to share, each will receive £25,000.
60% of funds raised from ticket sales are donated to good causes, which is far more than the 28% donated by the National Lottery. Plus all of the organisations supported operate within the Harrogate District, so by playing you are helping your local community. Over 20 charities have already signed up to receive funding, including Harrogate Homeless Project, Ripon Activity Project and Disability Action Yorkshire.
As well as helping these organisations to raise money, the Harrogate Lottery hopes to raise their profiles and awareness of the great work that they do.
